HICKORY GROVE CEMETERY
aka
JOINER CEMETERY
Bird Township
Macoupin County, Illinois








      

This cemetery is located just north of Bird Farm Rd, south of Hettick Rd. in Bird Township, Macoupin Co., IL. It is situated in the NE 1/4 of the S 1/2 of the SE 1/4 of Section 5. According to the listing prepared by the Macoupin County Historical Society, "this cemetery was laid out in the early 1830s by James Husky and the first burials were for his daughters, Sarah and Elizabeth who died of pneumonia. In 1843 the people of the Hickory Grove Community bought the land from Mr. Husky to build their Methodist Episcopal Church and laid out the cemetery on the same ground. The church was used until 1870 when it was torn down." We couldn't find any evidence of the church during our visit to this cemetery on 9 June 2006, but I have an idea it was located at the top of the hill on which the cemetery sits and on the south end of the cemetery. It looks as if the cemetery is mowed several times during the year and although the grass was rather tall, there was no brush or tall weeds in the cemetery. Many of the stones are down and nearly covered with grass and dirt however, most of the oldest stones are still very easy to read.
